Indiana's Same-Sex Marriage Ban In Federal Appeals Court Today

August 26, 2014 Updated Aug 26, 2014 at 10:48 PM EDT

CHICAGO, Ill, (21Alive) -- Indiana's same-sex marriage ban will be argued in front of a Federal appeals court Tuesday in Chicago.

The 7th U.S. District Court of Appeals will be hearing both Indiana and Wisconsin's same-sex marriage cases beginning at 10:30 a.m.. Each state will be given 40 minutes of the court's time, with 20 minutes given to each side to make their case.

Both states had their bans on gay marriage overturned in June by federal judges. In Indiana, there was a two day window where same-sex couples were able to obtain marriage licenses from the state beginning on June 25. A stay was issued on the 27th, putting a halt to same-sex marriages pending today's appeal hearing.

There has not been a timetable given for when the appeals court will hand down a ruling.
